    Kovind was received at the airport by the BJP leaders. He met former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam and sought the support of the legislators belonging to his faction. He would also meet Chief Minister K. Palaniswami and seek his faction's support.

    The presidential nominee also met former Puducherry Chief Minister N. Rangasamy.

    "We extend our unconditional support to NDA's presidential candidate Ram Nath Kovind," Panneerselvam reportedly said.

    The ruling AIADMK in Tamil Nadu is divided into three factions led by Palaniswami, Panneerselvam and the party's Deputy General Secretary T.T.V. Dhinakaran.
